This mod has great potential, but only if I can get it to work properly:)  I am running 1.16 in with a default theme. I currently have this mod installed and the only time that it works is if I put the cron job in the browser...Cron Job Url:  http://www.mysite.com/forum/cronrss.php. after I load the page all posts are updated via RSS feeder. is there a way to have this refresh on its own? I can't seem to find any information on a fix for this awesome mod.

So, you can set it for 'fake cron' which allows it to check anytime the index.php is loaded and grabs new messages.  Otherwise, you need to do a crontab -e from the shell and then do something like a wget -q http://www.mysite.com/forum/cronrss.php with an interval of like... an hour or maybe even once a day.

There's no need for a 'fix'.  It works out-of-box that way.

I installed it and it said eveything was fine and them my whole site didn't work I had to get a back to bring my site back online.

Why does this mod do this?

Hi everyone,

I have a problem with the RSS Feed Poster, as in it doesn't post anything at all, not once not ever !!!
I have trawled through all these pages over the last week looking for a remedy but everything I try doesn't work.

I am using the smf 1.6 board, hosted on a Linux system
I have checked with host and fsockopen & cron are both enabled
I have checked the data base and there are 2 entries, smf_feedbot & smf_feedbot_log
I have tried fake cron
I have tried http://www.mysite.com/forum/cronrss.php [nofollow] (which when I load in my browser is a blank page...???)
I have tried various feeds, sometimes it gives an xml error usually something along the lines of "invalid character in line ....." so I remove that one and try another until I find one it accepts & says it is enabled !

I have installed, uninstalled & re-installed this package untill I have varicous veins on my eyeballs & radiation sickness through spending hours in front of this damned screen !!!

Can someone please offer me some advise on this problem as I'm at my witts end, I have ripped all my hair out, my wife has run off with the local geriatric (claiming he's more fun) and I'm bordering on setting off a small nuclear device which will be attached to my PC before very much longer !!!

HELP PLEASE !!!

This would be a good mod, however it would be better if it would keep the rss feeds in one thread instead of creating a new one for each rss item.

I would do a wget to that exact to cronrss.php via the web in the cron job to get to run.
